for it, but it passed -- it was deemed passed in the house. and the debt ceiling bill was used by senators as a vehicle, not as a threat. and not for leverage but as a vehicle to attach deficit reduction. so the use of the debt ceiling for the purpose that is ascribed to this one does not have a history that supports its use for this purpose. and so to the extent that you have the ability to look at this issue, i would urge that this is not only a dangerous precedent but a very likely problem for the economy when we need to emphasize economic growth and jobs. so i say that in a somewhat sober way because of what happened before. thank you. >> thank you very much. i'd like to welcome mr. brady, former chairman of the house administration committee, who's joining us today and our new chairman -- chairwoman candice miller, will be recognized at this time. chairwoman. >> thank you, mr. chairman. and i also am delighted to see you sitting in the seat there and welcome to the new members of the rules committee. i feel like i got florida covering my back over here. yeah. got your back

, the house has now passed the three-month suspension of the u.s. debt ceiling. what's your comments? >> it's the same as it was yesterday. the president believes that we need to, as a country, do the responsible thing and without drama or delay pay our bills. meet our commitments. ideally we would extend a raise -- or raise the debt ceiling for a long period of time so that this is not a question, so that the uncertainty that has surrounded this issue of late because of the political strategy that house republicans have taken will be removed or would be removed. it is certainly important to recognize that the bill that passed the house today, the position that the house republicans took beginning late last week represents a fundamental change from a strategy that they pursued up until this point which is to try to link the debt ceiling to an ideological agenda of spending cuts in which the choice presented to the american people was, either face dramatic cuts in social security or medicare or we'll default on our obligations and wreck the american economy and throw the financial system int

that would suspend the debt ceiling for three months with only republican support. in an about-face, speaker boehner is taking up the democratic position and urging his party not to fight over the debt ceiling. could it be that the spirit of compromise is visiting boehner's rightward flank? no. here's the fine print. rather than raise the debt ceiling, the bill temporarily suspends it. meaning a vote will be held at some future point to determine whether to pay off the debt retroactively. secondly, this is a larger scheme to move the battle over the deficit and spending to a place where the republicans feel they have more leverage. the gop hashed plans for a republican revolution. politico report s speaker john boehner, using paul ryan as his salesman, urged his members to make their stand on the budget and sequesters. jake sherman writes, in roughly 48 hours, the republicans went from defense to offense and retreated to the debt ceiling must be matched by spending cuts. it was the swiftest and most drastic position switch in boehner's speakership. it was not lost on kevin mccarthy who said,
strategy. they say they believe they have the votes to pass a short term debt ceiling increase today and seek deep intending cuts later. their plan was to spend the $16.4 trillion debt limit to allow the u.s. to keep borrowing money to pay its bills for another three months, then increase the legal limit to that new debt level. confusing but important politically. in exchange they're calling on the senate to pass a budget by spring. >> rimportant chess move in the debt talks. exit polls from tuesday's election in israel show netanyahu will almost certainly hold on to his job. the surprising surge of a new centrist party has weakened netanyahu's power, but could ease strained relations with the u.s. and signal a good sign for more flexibility for peace efforts. >> so much closer than anyone thought. >>> a candid look at mental illness in a very famous family. mayor yell he called running from crazy. more from her and her documentary coming up.

of the debt ceiling. we're going get to the fight on the sequestration and hold the line on the sequestration. it's a promise that our leadership is making to us. and as long as they keep that promise, i think many conservatives are going to be okay with that. then if we when we get to the debt ceiling fight, we're going to ask for at the minimum the one for one cuts that comes from the boehner rule for any long-term debt keeling extension. so if we look at that, it means that in ten to fifteen years, with very little help from the democrats question actually achieve a balance budget. which is much better than the 23 to 27-years thapt paul ryan budget gave us. and much better than the never-balancing budget that obama and the democrats have proposed for the last four years. so you look at all the data out there, all of the public opinion polls say that the american people think we're spending too much money. that the american people think that we are tackings too much. the problem is as republicans i think it goes to representative said as republicans we have seen as the party of big business

[applaus [applause]. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. we, the people, still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. we cannot mistake absolutism for principles or substitute spectacle
and then there were negotiations and a last minute deal. you have a plan to deal with the debt ceiling. i want you to explain it. i've been skeptical of it, but i'm coming around and see that they might actually be some wisdom behind it and i'm giving you credit as a strong credit of the cliff deal. explain it. >> what's going forward right now, we do not want to give any long-term new debt limit as you go forward. so what we're saying is here is the senate that has not produced a budget. you know it, sean, your listeners know it, but not many across america. the last time this democrat-controlled senate passed a budget, the ipad wasn't even introduced yet and they've already gone through what, three different versions? so we're doing a short-term moving the debt limit past the april 15th deadline, 'cause the most responsible thing any elected official could do is do a budget. how do you plan for the future. so we move it to there and if you don't pass the budget you don't get paid and now what? before that time, those cuts that we fought for in the last debt limit. they go into effect the first o

tomorrow, the boehner ruled but not applied dollar for dollar cuts for the debt ceiling the guided republicans in the last two years or decades and every system that flags for me. i think it's not republicans that are looking for relatives. i think his washington as a whole looking for relevance. we're running trillion dollars deficit is and would be the fifth straight year. the reality is s&p's downgraded. midis has sent the notice and we are still at the nsa's it's still 1995 where we are running dollars deficit. i hope it's not the case, but in the meantime all these games trying to figure out we frequent the, america's sunday aaa -- worthy of aaa rating. that's the serious reality. i hope that doesn't happen, but i don't know how but we can continue to go on. i don't think we have 10 years to somehow find a path to balance. we need to move my quick read. our mission to assessed the question, is very ten-year balanced-budget proposal in their and i don't know the answer. we don't have the numbers from the cbo, but our leadership has to have committed to that, different answers f
late today. have we heard anything? >> well, shep, some conservatives don't love this debt ceiling deal because they don't like the idea of adding to the nation's credit card. but all republicans are frustrated by the senate not passing budgets. so the message that house republicans are sending to their senate colleagues is if you don't do your job you should not get paid. >> right now, the biggest issue is the debt that's crushing the future for our kids and our grand kids. hard working taxpayers understand you can't keep spending money that you don't have. so we're going to continue to focus, especially here over this next 90, 120 day period on bringing some fiscal responsibility to washington. >> sources say late today in that meeting house speaker john boehner announced that house budget chairman paul ryan, the former vice presidential candidate is working on a plan to balance the budget in less than 10 years. that gives some reassurance to conservatives who are anxious about voting to authorize more debt, shep. >> shepard: democrats, mike, said they wanted a longer extension. what'
a short-term fix. lift the debt ceiling for a few months to take the pressure off, but require both house and senate to pass a budget. if they fail, congress would not get paid. >> you can't go for months and months without a paycheck. and what this does is basically says that your pay gets escrowed, put on hold until you pass a budget. >> reporter: trying to turn up pressure on democrats in the senate, who have not passed a regular budget in four years, relying on this comparison. >> didn't exist the last time the senate passed a budget. >> the last time they passed a budget the ipad hadn't even been introduced. >> it is expected a block of conservatives probably will not support this. house leadership hopes that it will pass. it does provide some breathing room. it does not enforce the debt ceiling. we'll be back at this in a couple of months. natalie? >> kelly o'donnell, thank you so much. >>> cnbc's courtney reagan is at the new york stock exchange for us again this morning. good morning, courtney. >> good morning, natalie. that vote that kelly o'donnell was speaking of will calm wall
very much. >>> the house of representatives is set to vote today on a measure to extend the u.s. debt ceiling for nearly four months. that bill is expected to get almost unanimous support from the republican caucus, meaning it will pass. democrats would prefer a longer term solution. senate majority leader harry reid has expressed support for the house bill. the white house says president obama won't stand in the way of it becoming law. ross? >> yeah. >>> we've been asking as a result here in davos how well u.s. lawmakers' persistent failure to come up with a permanent solution impact the u.s. economy. this is some of these views. >> the lack of decisions in the u.s., kicking the can down the road will be a drag. i think it will be a slower start in the united states as a result generally. >> actually very concerned because the issue is demography, medicare. it's not -- everybody focuses on the cost of running the state. about 15% to 20%. but in the short term, i think actually there will be answers. >> longer term, i think u.s. will be supported by the shale gas and the shale oil ind
, charlie, that house republicans felt comfortable over the debt ceiling for now. >> thank you. and one of secretary of state hillary clinton's final appearances before stepping down could be one of the most contentious. clinton is on capitol hill right now giving her long awaited testimony today about the attack that killed four americans. margaret brennan is on capitol hill this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. and secretary clinton will face harsh questions. she was unable to make previously scheduled testimony due to illness. in her opening statement, clinton's voice cracked as she recalled receiving the bodies of the u.s. personnel killed in benghazi. >>> clinton spoke about the progress made in fixing what investigators called saw stemmic failures, and drew a connection between the recent terror attack in al skwraeura and an assault. she'll also be pressed on whether there are connections between what happened in benghazi and the recent terror attack in algeria. now senate foreign relations committee john kerry will not take part in to
, everybody. the house is expected to vote on extending the debt ceiling. there is a new plan the house will take up which would say no one in the house of congress that doesn't pass a budget should get paid after i believe may 19th or something. is that a plan that would also pass in the senate? >> it might, becky. i've got give the house credit for focusing on the real underlying cause of all this government by cliff we've been living through,s which the fact that the senate doesn't function. senator reed chooses not to do a budget resolution for three consecutive years, we did no appropriation bills, no bill to address the debt ceiling and the consequence of this is we end up at midnight on december 31st with a gun to our head trying to get something done at the last minute nobody's had a chance to look at. what the house is saying is, it's about time the senate actually did what any law requires, which is pass a budget. and begin the process of setting the parameters for how we will solve this problem and live within our means and how we will eventually get on a sustainable fiscal p
